PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Sept 4

Today is Earthy Thursday and today the Pagan News Beagle brings you tales of the many ways we humans are trying to invent our way out of climate change: solar sponges, electric mass transit, propane from gut bacteria, floating cities and cities built for bicycling and walking. Enjoy your day!

Researchers at MIT are working on creating a graphite solar "sponge" -- a material which promises to make desalination and solar power generation, more efficient and inexpensive.

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday August 28

Earthy Thursday is here — and what a bumper crop of planetary news! Mysterious moving rocks in Death Valley (their secret discovered!); more (much more!) on the Icelandic volcanic eruption; living green roofs that replace air conditioning *and* generate solar energy; indigenous land management in Brazil fights climate change; and a slide show of amazing holy temples nestled in nature. Enjoy your Thursday!

The "moving rocks" of the playa known as "the Racetrack" in Death Valley have been a mystery for decades. Now we know exactly what makes them move. (I'll admit, I didn't see this answer coming.)

Covenant of the Goddess (a national Wiccan organization) accomplished a lot at their yearly Merry Meet convention, including establishing an Award for Outstanding Service; honored military Pagans; established an educational committee to fight sexual abuse; and adopted a formal statement on environmental issues. Read all the press releases from Merry Meet for all the details.

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday August 21

It's Earthy Thursday, full of stories that emphasize our connection with Mama Gaia. We've got a giant volcano stirring, tiny altars, drawing strength from Nature, cleaning up after gatherings, fossilized forest fires, and indigenous farmers meeting to plan for climate change. Have a great Thursday!

What's an Earthy Thursday without a report of a huge volcano in Iceland threatening to erupt? Well, if you haven't heard of (Anglicized spelling) Bardarbunga yet, check out the story here. (Includes two great slideshows of previous Icelandic eruptions.)

Why we should have little altars everywhere. (Hint, its to connect with both inner peace and Mother Earth.)

PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday 18

In today's dispatch we include "airy" topics both literal and metaphorical: two stories of NASA space science, and three accounts of Pagan topics in academic circles.

This story is a personal favorite: a team of amateurs and retired scientists have "recaptured" a NASA satellite in the first-ever case of "citizen" astrophysics.
